Ive been out of action a little bit in the last few days. I had laser surgery on a varicose vein in my leg (thanks to having my 5 babies) All in all, it hasnt been as bad as I thought, a little painful, alot of bruising, but I will be so happy not to have that ugly vein on my calf :)
We are gearing up for Christmas, I cant believe how quickly it has arrived. We are having dinner at my SIL home this year ( we alternate, one year here, the next at their house), we all help out with the cooking. Im usually in charge of the sweet stuff. I make a wicked plum pudding, and a sponge cake :) I also love to make the fiddly little slices,truffles and all things chocolate LOL... yum !!!! I am also going to make a gingerbread house this year, which my kids are very excited about. Its a bit like scrapbooking with food I spose he he........
Today, I have a few little things to show you, which have been published in magazines lately. The first one is a Christmas gift bag I made for SCRAPBOOKING MEMORIES. I have used Kaisercrafts 'Dec 25th' collection for this little bag. I really love those papers, and have used them heaps lately. I purchased the little bags from Spotlight, and they are fairly low cost, and make a fantastic gift bag for someone special.
The next few projects I have to show you were made for AUSTRALIAN SCRAPBOOK IDEAS magazine. I was given these gorgeous Maya road albums to use. The first one, a 6x6 album, I made for my daughter, using photos of her 21st birthday party, which was in August this year. I love that the Prima paper pads fit this album perfectly.
The second Maya road album I did was this cute little calico one. It is the perfect size for little hands, so I decided to do a little farm album for my 3yo Harrison. I kept the album fairly simple, so Harry could read it and play with it, and have included alot of photos taken around our farm. Photos of our tractors, header, crops, and some of our animals.
Thankyou so much for taking the time to visit. And please leave a comment :) Have a wonderful weekend.
